Abstract

Leiomyoma is a very rare intraocular tumor, which can occur in the iris, ciliary body and choroids. We report a case of choroidal leiomyoma in a 16-Years old women whose left eye was enucleated because of clinical suspicion for melanoma. Using conventional light microscopy tumor was interpreted as spindle cell tumor, most probably of neurogenic origin and after using immunohistochemical studies; smooth muscle origin of tumor was confirmed.
